Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 218341
Power off and suspend-to-RAM not working on Sony Vaio VGN-C140G
Last modified: 2008-05-06 13:06:56 EDT
Description of problem:
On the Sony VAIO C140G (probably true for other laptops in the C1x0 line), the
laptop would not power off or suspend. The shutdown sequence would proceed
normally but at the end the power light remains on, and I have to hold the power
button for 4 seconds to turn it off.
Likewise with suspend-to-RAM. Instead of the power light blinking red it stays
on and green.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
System remains on after the relevant sequence has been carried out
System powered off / enters sleep mode
It has an Intel 3945 wireless chipset. I have manually turned off NetworkManager
and modprobe -d the kernel module before attempting sleep.
The failure to power off is due to VMware modules not being stopped (the problem
with closed source..). It still does not enter sleep mode properly.
On kernel 2.6.19-1.2919.fc7, the device would enter sleep state but still would
not wake up
Sorry for the really slow response.
Have you been able to try a newer kernel or Fedora release, and does it help at
all? (Work on hibernation and suspend to ram is going on all the time, so you
can generally expect that newer kernels will improve the situation).
